Reel To Real Film and Discussion Series: Groundhog Day

Thursday, May 9 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Join us for our next Reel to Real in which we have dinner and watch a movie together, then explore the cinematic themes and how they play out in real life. This month’s selection is Harold Ramis’s classic comedy Groundhog Day (1993) in which cynical weatherman Phil Connor (Bill Murray) discovers that he is stuck living the same day (Groundhog Day) over and over again. At first, he uses this to his advantage, then comes to the realization that he is doomed to spend the rest of eternity in the same place, seeing the same people do the same thing every day.

In our ever-unsettling world, we can easily slide into the tyranny of busyness. Some of us stay busy all the time to fend off feelings of emptiness, loneliness, or depression. The ancients have taught us that true happiness and peace originates from within. But is this possible when our consumer society emphasizes external things, activities, and accomplishments? We’ll discuss these questions as we watch Bill Murray navigate the quagmire of eternal limbo, and discuss how each of us deals with the onslaught of distraction that prevents us from true connection with each other.

Program schedule:

  • 6:30 Dinner available
  • 7:00 Film begins
  • 8:30-9:00: Discussion (stay as long as you like!)
